[ laughter ] [ applause ] she gone and done it. >> jimmy: are you parents coming to the oscars with you? >> oh, of course. >> jimmy: that's a given? >> that's a given. >> jimmy: did you get them tickets yet? >> well, i've never really had a problem getting tickets for my family, which is weird, because i think that's a big struggle. normally you only get plus-one, but i think they're in the mafia or something. i've never had a problem getting my family tickets. >> jimmy: somehow you've managed? >> there's something going on. >> jimmy: naomi watts was here and she was saying she was having problems getting her family tickets to the oscars. but i think people are lying and making it like it's very difficult to get their family tickets. >> oh, okay. >> jimmy: because clearly you can easily get your family tickets. >> it's so easy. >> jimmy: do your parents embarrass you? i think i remember seeing you cry on like "access hollywood" or something like that. were you weeping on "access hollywood"? >> she was stepping on my foot. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: does that make you start getting teared up when your parents -- >> no, never. i'm just like stop crying, woman. my dad and i both react differently on camera. my dad and i turn into compulsive red necks and my mother just turns into a weeping willow. >> jimmy: it's a nice combination. dad's not here tonight? >> we're a totally normal family. i'm drunk. she's crying. >> jimmy: you're as american as anybody else. we're going to take a quick break. when we come back, we'll see a clip from "sliver linings playbook." it's a great movie. jennifer lawrence is here. we'll be right back.

[ applause ] >> jimmy: you had the big interview. you got the big one, manti te'o. everybody wanted him. how did you talk him into talking with you? >> well, basically, he apparently -- his parents apparently had watched me. likely the fellow who was helping him with crisis management issues also helps me. but i wasn't in a crisis. he just sort of helps me in general. and i think that they wanted a place where he could -- the story, you know, is so ridiculously complicated. >> jimmy: and ridiculous. >> so many twists and turns that actually i think you really needed a longer format to get through everything that happened to this guy. >> jimmy: many times in the interview, you're asking why he did something and he really didn't seem to notice. i don't know what i was thinking. >> you know, i think he got sucked into this relationship and i think he sort of stayed with it. i think the narrative that emerged from it was very flattering to him, that he sort of played through these double tragedies, losing his girlfriend and grandmother on the same day. and i think this was a very religious guy who focused on football, graduated from notre dame in three and a half years, and probably, to be honest with you, having a phone girlfriend, whatever this person was on the other end of the phone, was probably easier for him than having a real girlfriend. do you ever feel that way, jimmy? >> jimmy: i wouldn't know. i didn't have a real girlfriend for a very long time. >> you had an imaginary girlfriend. >> jimmy: it occurred to me, i have some friends who are very bright who didn't even get into notre dame. this numb skull somehow graduated in three and a half years. he doesn't know what the difference between a man and a woman are online. >> you know what, we listened to the voicemails. we played them on the show. and honestly, it sounded like a young woman to me. and now they're saying this ronaiah tuiasosopo -- i had to work very hard to learn how to say that. that it was actually his voice that had been somehow altered. >> jimmy: not according to dr. phil. and i don't believe that either. >> he said it was actually a girl's voice? >> jimmy: dr. phil called in the police to investigate it. and apparently there is like a one in ten billion chance that it's actually his voice. it didn't sound anything like him. >> right. >> jimmy: now that's another great interview. did you try get an interview with tuiasosopo? >> yes, i did try to get an interview, but apparently he wanted to be on a different -- he wanted a different venue than manti. >> jimmy: why would he want to be on with dr. phil instead of you? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: do you think dr. phil paid him? >> i don't know, possibly. >> jimmy: is it possible? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: wouldn't that be something if this somehow got paid for doing this to this football player? >> you know, stranger things have happened. i have no idea if he was paid. we don't pay our guests. but i have no idea. >> jimmy: well, i was paid almost a million dollars to be on your show. you weren't aware of that? >> not by us, jimmy. you know, you need pillows on these chairs because they're very deep. and if you're not a tall person, you end up -- my feet don't even touch the ground. >> jimmy: we do it to humiliate the guests. >> well-played. >> jimmy: i'm sorry, wle have that fixed for the next time you are here. i want to ask about this process. i know michael jackson is somebody that you wanted to interview. >> i did, i did. >> jimmy: you never got a chance to interview him. >> no, i had an opportunity to meet him. oftentimes when you're trying to score these big interviews, you usually meet somebody before you interview them because you want them to feel comfortable, you want to talk to them, tell them why you're interested in doing it. so i went to the four seasons, which are there are a million security guards, he had taken over like four levels of the four seasons. i met him, we sat and talked for probably about 15 minutes. he told me he was working on a screen play about edgar alan poe, which i thought was interesting. he was going to play edgar alan poe. we said goodbye. i was hoping that was a positive meeting and he would talk to me. the next morning after i was done with the "today" show, i get this phone call. he was working with a guy called rabbi schmooley. >> jimmy: yeah, he's a real attention whore. >> he called me and he said katie, i have a question for you. are you seeing anyone? i said at the time -- it was a couple years after my husband had passed away and i was dating someone. i was like yes, but that's kind of disgusting, aren't you married with a lot of kids? he goes no, not for me. michael is interested in going out with you. and i was like, wow. and then i thought that would be -- can you imagine going home to my daughters who were then about like 8 and 4 saying honey, i'm going on -- girls, i'm going on a date with michael jackson. so i thought it would just be too weird. >> jimmy: yes. >> and the tabloids would go crazy. i didn't need that. >> jimmy: it would be very, very weird. he probably would have fed you to his giraffes or something. >> now i'm just really sorry i didn't have dinner with him because it would have been a fascinating conversation. >> jimmy: just to see him lift that mask up and see what's going on under there. >> i didn't think it was worth it. when i met him, he had this very thin piece of tape down his nose and across his nose. i think it might have been during a time where he was having trouble with sort of his nose collapsing or something. >> jimmy: yeah, well we've all been there. [ laughter ] you know, larry king was here, and he said he went on a date with you. many years ago. i cannot believe that that -- i refuse to believe that that is true. is that true? >> his recollection is very different, jimmy. >> jimmy: what is your recollection of this horrible, horrible event? >> so, i was about 30 years old and i was going through this period of my life where i was going i'm going to go out with anybody who asks me because you learn something every time you go out with a new person. you learn something and it's something new. so i met larry at this restaurant in washington. and what can i say, jimmy? i was wearing a leather skirt. and so he called me and he asked me out to dinner. i thought well that will be really interesting. >> jimmy: katie, you're on the air. >> so he picks me up at my apartment. i lived in washington. picked me up. i came downstairs and he had a lincoln town car. he was driving the lincoln town car. i get in, he puts the tape deck and it's jack jones. ♪ i am a singer and we're driving. we go to k street to this italian restaurant. they put us right next to each other like they do to all the men and their nieces. so we're sitting there eating. and he ordered veal poached in chicken stock because he had had just had quadruple bypass, which was hot. so we're having a nice enough time and we're driving home. we're going over memorial bridge and that's not the way back to my apartment. i go larry, where are we going? he goes my place.
